This track pretty much traverses the ridgeline all the way from Round Knob through to Belmont Trig.

Runner Notes

Much of this track is fully exposed to the wind from every direction, so prepare accordingly; make sure you bring your own water.

Description

Although there are no big climbs or descents on this track, there is a series of small hills. When following the standard route from north to south the cumulative altitude gain is about 200m - even though the track's start and end differ in altitude by less than 40m.

Most of the track surface consists of hard-packed dirt and rock, with a fair amount of grass covering in many places. There are multiple entry and exits from this track. At the northern end is Round Knob. At or near the southern end is Belmont Trig, Belmont Trig South, and Horokiwi Bridleway.

Along the way, take in Cannons Head, Middle Ridge, or Takapu Ridge.
